CENTRAL APARTMENT IN FLORENCE - HISTORIC BUILDING

Historic Center Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The apartment SAN NICCOLO' is situated on the ground-floor of an antique aristocratic building, the Pecori-Giraldi Palace, that dates back to the 16th century.

This lovely apartment has been recently restored in the full respect of the best Tuscan tradition: bricktile and wooden floors, raftered ceilings and large, thick walls characterise its interior. It is made up of a wide open space with a loft king-size bed, a spacious living-room furnished with convertible beds, one bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen.

Located in the area of San Niccolò, one of the most characteristic areas of ancient Florence, this apartment is at a walking distance from Ponte Vecchio, Ponte alle Grazie, Santa Croce, and all the most important artistic and historical points of interest.

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5
Sometimes you just never know what you might find. Especially when you're locating accommdations on the internet and aren't familiar with the city. In this case, the city was Firenze (Florence) and I wasn't quite sure the layout, etc. Well, I couldn't have found a more perfect location for a short term apartment. Centrally located, just minutes from Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi, Piti Palace, Boboli Gardens... Great supermarket near Ponte Vecchio, great restaurants and of course, gelato on every corner! The space was perfect... we were there during a heat wave of 95F degree days.. the apartment was naturally cool and refreshing, all the amenities we could want, and wifi to keep us connected and sharing our great experiences with friends and family. A ground floor unit, with just a few steps to reach it.. a short flight of steps inside to reach the lofted bedroom with a window overlooking a courtyard. With Firenze at your fingertips, it'd be hard to stay inside much, be when you do, it's a comfortable place to call home during your exploration of the city. I'd rent it again in a heartbeat and encourage/refer my friends to do the same! Grazie for a wonderful stay!

Easy in Florence

  • 4 of 5
The man who meets you gives you so much help and information it should be added in to the price. The place is like staying at your grandparents, it has a old fashion look but is comfortable and homey. The tub is nice after a long day to soak your tired body and the washer was a great help to us since we packed light. The location was nice not far from the main hot spots but quiet and more local.

Perfect for our needs.

  • 4 of 5
The arrangements: All of our communications were with Carlos. During the reservation and booking process, all of our e-mail inquiries were answered promptly. Carlos met us at the apartment, and showed us around. His English is impeccable and he is very friendly. Carlos gave us helpful advise as to what to do and see in Florence. He is meticulous with respect to receipts, deposits, payments, etc.

The apartment: The apartment is in a 14th century family palace. The apartment itself is very comfortable. The lighting and plumbing, although modern and completely functional, seemed a little odd by north american standards. The apartment is very secure. The apartment was equipped with a dehumidifier, and it should be used (at least occasionally) to avoid dampness. The kitchen is well equipped. The main bed is in the loft, plus there is a pull-out double couch on the main floor. The bed is comfortable; we didn't try the pull-out.
Although the apartment is equipped with modern conveniences, you will never forget that you are in a historic building.

The apartment is in Oltrarno, very close to the Arno river. It is a five minute walk to the Ufizzi, and a ten minute walk to the Duomo. Oltrarno is a destination itself; Pitti Palace and Boboli and Bardini gardens are very close to the apartment. Good restaurants and markets are nearby.

Perfect Get Away

This apartment was perfect for our needs. It was in excellent condition, the bathroom was lovely, and although is was not large, it felt large due to the layout of a loft bedroom. It was a short walk to Santa Croce which was marvelous during the holidays. We walked everywhere in the city, but there is conveniently a taxi stand a few blocks away at Santa Croce. We would absolutely rent it again.

Very well located

  • 4 of 5
The studio is in San Nicolo so a nice place to see all the famous places of Florence. Shops, restaurants... everything is very near. It was also clean and very calm.
There are only two windows uptairs (mezzanine) with trees in front of it, so only put some light on the stairs and near the bed. So the kitchen and living room are plunged into the dark at any time of the day (summer). The bathroom has no window too. Having no natural light is hard in summer but i guess it's not a big problem in winter as everythin is dark outside too.
So, good points : San Nicolo is a nice street and quarter ; clean ; bed is confortable, calm...
Bad points : very dark, tv out of order, noisy jaccuzzi...

Great Apartment for Our Stay in Florence

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four spent three nights in this apartment and found it met our needs perfectly. It's well maintained and well equipped (we cooked several meals there), the beds were comfortable and the smell of Jasmine coming through the windows was lovely. As others have mentioned, the location is perfect (near enough to the sights to be convenient, but not in the middle of the touristy areas).
Carlo was very helpful at check-in and made suggestions of things to do. The apartment is right down the street from the Bardini Gardens which adjoin the famous Boboli gardens at the Pitti Palace. It was a lovely walk through both gardens and then to some of the musuems at the Pitti.
In regards to some complaints about the apartment's dampness, there is a dehumidifier which we did use the whole time we were there. Without the dehumidifier it would have been quite damp, but since we used it, we had no problems with dampness.

Plenty of restaurants and bars are nearby, although the street is quiet. An American art school of high standards oil painting is right across the street. The area is safe and relaxing.
